Unless you’ve been living under a rock lately, you’ve probably heard of and even tried a BB (beauty balm) cream. They promise better, brighter, and more even tones skin, and are supposed to offer great coverage without the traditional heavy feel of a foundation. However, with so many on the market today, how’s a girl to choose? No worries! We have our top three picks for the best beauty balms for your money.
Estee Lauder Day Wear Beauty Benefit Crème
The issue many people have with beauty balms is shine. If you have oily skin and use a typical balm, you may not only feel like you have an oil slick on your t-zone by lunch, you could also suffer a break out. Thank goodness for this balm! It contains light moisturizers to help skin glow and hyaluronic acid to heal and prevent acne and keep shine at bay.
Dr. Brandt Signature Flexitone BB Cream
This balm is perfect for those who feel their skin is suffering from a serious case of the winter blues. The coverage is not super thick, but it does provide a very luminous glow making your skin look healthier and instantly gorgeous!
Stila Stay All Day 10 in 1 Beauty Balm
If you’re looking for a little more coverage as well as an anti-aging balm, this is your go-to balm! Not only does this one stay in place all day without shine, it also contains microspheres that help to blur imperfections and smooth fine lines.
So whatever your poison, at least give the new BB creams a try. With wintery days still among us, every girl’s skin could use a little extra TLC and a tiny boost of beautiful!
